I am thinking of buying a new smartphone as my old smartphone is already 3 years old.
Can anyone help me to decide?

My consideration would be either the iPhone 3G 8GB or the new Samsung Omnia II.
They both cost the same under Singtel 2-year contract.

Since you have used a smartphone previously, do you still prefer Windows Mobile or are you ready for a change to Mac OSX. Things in the Iphone don't work the same way as it is in Windows Mobile.

I am currently using a Palm OS.

I got the Omnia II and I think it's great but IPhone would have more free apps available online and looks cooler.

Do you need something for business (heavy emailer) or just social fun?

If it's social fun, wait for the SonyEricsson Satio. :)

If your comparison is between these two phones only, I would rather you go for iPhone 8gb. Currently, I am using this phone and it works great when compared to my bro's omniaII. He basically bought the phone for the camera only but is already thinking to switch to iPhone as both of us feel that iPhone is very much faster when running side by side.

You should really try out the phone's in person. I don't find the iphone intuitive but maybe that's just me. The wifey loves her iphone... Oh, due note that iphone 3gs can overheat, and if so, you'll have to turn it off, and let it cool down... as per apple's comments a couple of months ago.

is it the battery or the circuit overheating? that's something I don't expect from apple but then anything can happen on the first few batches of shipments.

Has anyone downgrade from a PDA Phone/Smartphone to a normal phone?
And why?

I did for a while. Smaller size, simpler to use, for the most basic tasks like sms and calling, a simple SE/Nokia is hard to beat. Sometimes smartphones have too many features, requiring too much effort to get the simplest tasks done.
